Last day of school set

February’s snow days may be a distant memory, but their effect on the school calendar lingers. The school board accepted the district’s recommendation that the district adhere to its original calendar, and so the last day of the 2013-14 school year for students will be June 13, despite the two days lost to snow.

The last day of school for students will be a half-day, as it usually is. For teachers, the last day of work will be June 18.

Teachers will spend June 16 and 17 engaged in professional development activities.

Register for kindergarten

Kindergarten registration for the 2014-15 school year continues throughout the West Linn-Wilsonville School District.

Completed forms should be returned to the school office.

Registrations are being accepted for both full- and half-day classes.

There is no charge for half-day classes, and full-day kindergarten classes will again be tuition-based for the next school year, with monthy payments of $390 and a $125 deposit required at the time of registration.

Scholarships are available; application forms are included in the registration packet. Call 503-673-7200 with questions.
